Excerpt: I like the Startac it has good volume, easy to change ring and mute volume. Great reception with the right service provider. Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. This phone is a quick charge, it has a whole list of accessories for hands-free, speakerphone, etc.

Cons: Buttons are a little small for someone with big fingers
Excerpt: If you want a rather cool looking mobile then this is the one. Well that’s what I thought. It had cool looks, and was very hi-tech.

Altough it has several annoying faults, intermittentily it switches itself off, sometimes it registers no signal in areas where I know the signal is good.
Excerpt: Through necessity we had to buy a phone which had the keys covered - ie. a flip phone. As the startac was the smallest, this was what we got.
